The happy path

If all is going well with your saltwater swimming pool you will still need to regularly add:

  1. water (if hot/dry conditions lower the level)
  2. salt (a few bags over summer)
  3. hydrochloric acid (approx a cup per weak)
  4. uric acid

And you will need to regularly:

  1. empty the baskets (1-7 days)
  2. test the pool (1-7 days)
  3. backwash the filter (monthly)
  4. rinse the filter (when backwashing)
  5. de-calcify the chlorinator (1-3 months)

And vacuum the pool (if you don't have an automated vaccum or robot butler)

You will need to perform a lot more maintenance in summer than winter.

And when things go wrong you may need to add:

  1. chlorine (aka shock)
  2. alkaline (aka buffer)
  3. phosphate remover (aka starver)
  4. (aka clarifier)
  5. Flocculant
